I love that 'next time' Edna visits the village is the tease, yet she never does make it to the village, does she?

Actually I didn't lose any weight but I did find you through a random search here on the Internet Archives.. The audio for the most part is very good. I am a huge B&R fan and have shared some of these clips with Ray G Jr.
By the way.. TWPITW refers to B&R calling John Simon The Worst Person In The World after Simon was the only critic to pan their The Two and Only Broadway show. He gave the show a blistering review,, Bob had it framed.. Ray said he'd never read it but Bob thinks he did..

Even though B&R were using alot of scripted stuff from hired writers, this is still good stuff...especially when they break into ad-libbed conversation. Although past their prime here, ANY Bob and Ray is enjoyable to listen to. Thanks for posting.

Subject: There is now a Desperate Forum
The administrators at the Internet Archive have very graciously allowed a Forum for such questions and general discussion. However, the answer may be in episode #044.

What does the abbreviation for John Simon mean?
